Abraham Lincoln High School Text

Parents

At Abraham Lincoln High School, we encourage you to take an active role in the education of your child!

We hope the following information will assist you in supporting your student:

Visiting Our School

We welcome all parents and guardians into the school to check on student progress, observe classrooms or meet with teachers. When it is necessary to meet with a teacher, contact the teacher and arrange a mutually agreed-upon time. Teachers may not leave classrooms during instruction. Parents can contact their student’s teachers by calling the main office at 720-423-5000 or via email; staff contact information can be found in our school directory.

Parents are encouraged to attend back to school nights, parent/teacher conferences and other school events!

Checking Grades and Attendance

Parents and guardians should have access to the online Parent Portal to monitor their child’s grades and attendance. Visit the Parent Portal to set up an account; if you have questions or need assistance, call the main office at 720-423-5000 or email our parent liaison, Isela Galvan-Chacon, at isela_galvan@dpsk12.org.

Reporting Absences

We expect our students to attend school at least 90% of the time. If your child must be absent for all or part of the day for any reason, call the attendance line at 720-423-5033. The Attendance Secretary will also accept a written excuse from the parent on the day the student returns.

Note: Students are responsible for getting and completing all worked missed due to an absence.

Hearing from ALHS

We communicate with our families in a number of ways, including:

  • We use an automated calling system to send recorded messages to students’ homes every day to alert parents to student absences.
  • We use this same system to send recorded messages to students’ homes from time to time.
  • All students have a weekly advisory period. Advisement teachers will contact you at least once a month to alert you of your students’ progress.
  • Lincoln will be sending home a parent newsletter every six weeks to update parents on information and important dates.
  • Information will be provided through our website and our Facebook page.

Updating Contact Information

Accurate contact information is needed to contact parents. If contact information changes after registration, contact the school office at 720-423-5000.

Volunteering at ALHS

We encourage all parents/guardians to volunteer 10 hours per school year to make Abraham Lincoln High School be the best it can be. Parents may decide to assist with prom, work on a fundraising event, help out in the office, monitor hallways — your choices are numerous. Please contact our parent liaison, Isela Galvan-Chacon, at isela_galvan@dpsk12.org or call her at 720-423-5008.

Serving on our Collaborative School Committee (CSC)

Parent and community involvement is an essential part of creating the best learning experience for our students. Our CSC meets on a monthly basis to guide the work at ALHS.
